Architecture must meet the social demands and look at culture, traditions, time frame and life style. We always work to develop our past and to create a unique identity to our buildings. El Gabaly Architects works on a critical design to reach to which is known as inherent complexity in building and construction so as to be created only to produce strong projects and adaptable. This design and other tactical decisions are working with many of the restrictions and unexpected developments in any projects, whether large or small. Using these important events in a fruitful way is an essential manner to achieve any successful architect, and not only to have the ability of unaccepting the change.
As an architectural, civilized and social phenomenon on the domestic and international level which led to the appearance of multiple investments offers so as to apply the same idea. The concept is in various locations inside and outside Egypt. Those efforts resulted in the emergence of new projects for this architectural style of recreational and social buildings notably by Zayed Dome project in Sheikh Zayed City as a generative methodology for a redefined architectural vision.
Design Concept: the idea architecture is that any pattern of architectural buildings that have proved successful and its efficiency after implementation and operation, affected in rural environment and different determinants design for the sites if you want to apply it again and being away from repetition and direct replication, development according to the new data in each case considered to be one of the most important impediments to the continued success of the original design idea.
Design Philosophy: design philosophy was based on the most important environmental, cultural, topography features to the site of the project in El Sheikh Zayed City as one of the new cities in the western extension to Cairo and its culture as the desert tongues levels in order to draw a module network for the project through natural configuration system for sand dunes.
Sand dunes: as well as the concept of Oasis’s natural water and Ronevi Desert (Desert Oasis). Expressing the natural environment through the materials used in the buildings project and derived from the color and texture of then desert sand and natural stones, as well as local materials used in installation desert such as natural wood and shading elements as tents. From this point, we found that the design philosophy which was based on the development of the architectural pattern for the building’s project from the image of desert oasis. It was formed from nature and spatial containment of the main vacuum configurations of the project in sand dunes as well as the shape of the surface of natural water. Respecting the architectural behavior for the project’s blocks is to follow the kinetic behavior configuration from the sand dunes movement influenced by the wind.
And thus, respect for architectural composition and module network for the buildings (Pattern), was inspired from the system movement of sand dunes under the influence of the wind. In the cohesion fully with the raw materials used in installations desert such as timber and tents and the use of raw materials inspired by nature of the site, such as natural stone and shadow cladding, sense and color of sand desert which is distinctive to the environmental part of the project site. Privacy and Relaxation in terms of privacy (privacy & relaxing) have individual seating in the opened and closed places away from the external streets which can provide the relaxing atmosphere and recreations of the pioneers away from the external streets with its negative characteristics such as nuisance, pollution and sound effects. Building forms have taken place under the influence of the behavior of the natural movement of the sand dunes in the direction of containment internal environment and external nature in the middle of the project. From the concept of formations architectural and automatic buildings projects to simulate spontaneous and improvised configurations of the natural environment project, were analyzed configuration buildings to elements lobbed of the natural phenomena of the environment surrounding the project site key elements such as stripping stalks palm and fences desert and can be used as a focal to the bishop and umbrellas project, and embodied elements horizontal slabs construction of buildings in the form of layers configurations of the natural environment (layers). Automatic configuration where different border tiles and plateaus with each level, hoping to reach the automatic configurations simulated configurations layers desert landscape extended design idea to include elements of secondary site format, such as small lakes that are designed configurations simulated configurations pools of water found in nature under the influence of the desert sand dunes.
As well as characterization of the features of the existing natural environment active such as palms trees, cactus and soil levels as essential elements in coordinating elements landscaping and plants (Soft Scope) used inside and outside the facilities. And the use of automatic natural formations and natural advantages desert information configurations water within the project elements.
Design concept: Natural Living: based on the concepts upon which it relied design philosophy based idea Altsamima on how to improve the concept of normal life (Nature Living) through and Desert Oasis boss within the project mix harmony which configurations buildings with formations and characteristics environment of the site to achieve perfect integration between the blanks architectural open and closed with internal and external nature of the project (Nature Living) and hope to access to bases and target design characteristics of this type of projects.
Containment Enclosure: configurations buildings to reach and in view of similar enjoys the architectural blanks open and closed for restaurants and cafes angles direct visualization of the components of natural water in the middle of the project and thus the use of walls designed for buildings (Solid Foundry) barriers visual to maintain the privacy of empty project from the direction of buildings neighboring locations.
Introvert Court: this idea depends on applying the concepts of the introvert court of the Arabian Desert architecture, that all units enjoy restaurants, cafes within the internal project views in internal direction oasis in the middle.
Building Forms: configurations buildings moved under the influence behavior movement natural formations of sand dunes natural sand in the direction of containment internal environment and external natural center project, from concept formations architectural and automatic buildings project to simulate spontaneous and improvised configurations of the natural environment surrounding the project, were analyzed configurations buildings to elements lobbed and horizontal each shows the behavior of one of the natural phenomena of the environment project site key elements such as stripping stalks palm and fences desert and be used as a focal to the bishop and umbrellas project, and embodied elements horizontal slabs construction of buildings in the form of layers configurations of the natural environment (Layers) automatic configuration where different border tiles and plateaus with each level, hopping to reach the automatic configurations simulated configurations layers desert landscape.
Landscape Elements: Extended design idea to include elements of secondary site format, such as small lakes that are designed configurations simulated configurations pools of water found in nature under the influence of the desert sand dunes configurations.
Shading Elements: Fabrics were used tents Aletilon as shading elements of terraces, restaurants and cafes at various levels within the premises of the project.
